If you want to create the wow factor in your home, a feature wall is a quick and effective way to do this.

Work out which wall is the most dominant in your room, in the bedroom we often use the bed head wall creating a backdrop for our headboards but in other rooms it needs to be a wall which is seen. Its no use adding a wonderful wall paper or panel to a wall which can only be seen from a difficult angle. The point of a feature wall is to grab the attention and really be seen, so don’t be shy.

In my designs over the years I have used many designer wall papers, paint finishes and wall panels and when ever possible I add lighting to make even more of a feature, if you are going to do it, do it well.

I personally don’t like to add pictures or art onto my feature walls as I prefer to allow the feature to become the art.

Some of the wall panels that I have used are quite pricey as they are bespoke pieces and become part of the fittings but a paint finish or wall paper can be less expensive and a less risky option if you are not 100% sure.

Chose a paper which shows your personality and colour scheme and go for it. Here are some of my feature walls and favourite coverings.
